Mentoring and support arrangements for mobile participants

MONITORING AND SUPPORT

We offer several different types of mentoring and support.

ESN BelUPgrade

Erasmus Student Network Serbia is a part of Erasmus Student Network, the biggest student association in Europe which is present in more than 40 countries, devoted to improving the social and cultural integration of international students based on the principle students helping students. ESN student organisation in Belgrade runs a ‘buddy’ scheme that connects new students with buddies – volunteers who share their experiences and offer extra support to incoming students. Your buddy may help you prepare your stay, meet you on your arrival and help you with health insurance, visa issuance, accommodation, residence permit, but also integrate you in all kinds of social events and activities during your entire stay in Belgrade.

If you need support, please contact ESN BelUPgrade via email budy.belupgrade@esn.rs, join their Facebook group Student Exchange in Belgrade or for more information visit their website.

CHM Buddy Support

Upon your arrival in Belgrade and registration at the International Cooperation Office, you will be appointed a peer mentor (student buddy) at the college.

The CHM Buddy Support is organised by the Students’ Parliament. Our student-volunteers are happy and enthusiastic about being able to help you transition to our college. During the Welcome Week, the CHM students volunteers help the incoming students to integrate better in the CHM community and everyday life, by showing them the college locations, buildings, libraries and classrooms, by introducing them to academic mentors, as well as by encouraging their participation in students’ programmes and activities.

Academic mentoring

Depending on the courses you choose, you will be appointed an academic mentor during your registration at the International Cooperation Office at the college. Your academic mentor will be in charge of your academic integration, providing more extensive and in-depth individual academic attention and support during your mobility. The nature of such academic mentoring allows the professor to closely follow your development. For other questions you may also contact Coordinator for Mobility at andrea.zerajic@vhs.edu.rs
